Mutt is a text based email client for Linux


Mutt (English for city rail) is a text-based email client for Unix-like operating systems such as GNU / Linux. It was originally written by Michael Elkins and released under the GNU General Public License. Mutts slogan is "All mail clients suck. This one just sucks less", meaning something like All email clients are useless. This is just a little less useless.

Mutt can be configured with hundreds of different directives and commands. You can change keystrokes, create your own macros, and change the color scheme.

Mutt is a pure so-called Mail User Agent and can not send e-mail by itself, but must communicate with a Mail Transfer Agent using the Unix system's usual sendmail interface.

Mutt supports various types of mailboxes, including mbox, MMDF, MH and maildir. It supports mail servers with both IMAP and POP3 and has integrated support for PGP / GPG.

Mutt can do regular expression searches that include an internal language for pattern matching.

Mutt is completely controlled by the keyboard and supports e-mail threads, which means it's easy to navigate in long discussions in email lists. By default, new messages are composed with an external text editor, unlike pine, which has its own built-in text editor pico.
